Cash activated, Brown optioned

The Red Sox have activated catcher Kevin Cash from the disabled list and optioned catcher Dusty Brown to Triple A Pawtucket.

 

Cash was placed on the disabled list on August 12 with a hamstring injury. Initially acquired from the Astros to address a position that at the time was without both Victor Martinez and Jason Varitek, Cash has hit .176/.252/.250 in 40 games this season between the Red Sox and the Astros. Cash has also spent parts of the 2007 and 2008 seasons in Boston.

 

Brown, 28, has hit .250/.250/.333 in seven games for the Red Sox this season.

Damon: 'I'm not going'
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from Jason Beck of MLB.com, Tigers designated hitter Johnny Damon has told reporters in Detroit that he will not accept a move to the Red Sox, who claimed him on waivers Monday.

 

"I'm not going," Damon said, according to Beck.

 

Damon had a clause in his one-year deal with the Tigers that allowed him to block trades to eight teams, a list that included the Red Sox. Damon played with the Red Sox from 2002-2005 and won a World Series with the team in 2004.

Cameron to have surgery on Friday
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron will have abdominal surgery on Friday at Mass General Hospital on Friday, manager Terry Francona told reporters Tuesday. Cameron played in just 48 games this season, his first with the Red Sox, before being shut down for the year due to an abdominal injury that has plagued him throughout the season.

 

In the time that he did see this season, Cameron hit .259/.328/.401 with four homers and 15 runs batted in. He is in the first year of a two-year, $15.5 million deal.

Report: Damon choice could be 'no-brainer'
By: DJ Bean

Tigers designated hitter Johnny Damon has told the Boston Globe that his decision of whether to agree to a potential move back to the Red Sox could be made much easier following a talk with his current team.

 

"I think [the Tigers are] still in this," Damon told the Globe. "But I've got to know whether they're going to keep playing me or whether they're going to go with the younger guys. If I'm not going to play as much, the decision is a no-brainer."

 

The Red Sox claimed Damon on waivers Monday but he can veto moves to eight teams, one of which is the Red Sox. The 36-year-old added that Jason Varitek and David Ortiz, who is "very excited" at the prospect of his return, have both contacted him trying to influence his decision.

Laurence Maroney: 'I know I'm the stuff'

FOXBORO -- Patriots fifth-year running back Laurence Maroney believes he still as the ability to show the Patriots and the rest of the NFL why New England chose him in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of the University of Minnesota.

 

"I know I'm the stuff," Maroney quipped. "I know how good I am."

 

Maroney said after Tuesday's practice indoors. Earlier in the day, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said that Maroney has worked hard in the offseason and training camp and is 'ready to go' and prepared to put his four-fumble season from 2009 behind him.

 

Asked if he's ready to play more on Thursday night against the Rams in preseason game No. 3, Maroney smiled and laughed, "I hope you ask Belichick if you have a request, like a request to see me a lot more. You put that in the papers a lot more, I'm pretty sure he can't let the fans down."
